Christianization and Commonwealth in Early Medieval Europe

A Ritual Interpretation

Nathan J. Ristuccia

  • Critiques and reformulates the scholarly paradigm of Christianization
  • Offers a reassessment of the spread of Christianity in Western Europe
  • Examines the prominent Christian feast-Rogationtide--in order to argue that the modern religious borders between Christianity, Judaism, and paganism did not exist in the early Middle ages
